Expert in sexual medicine presents Dicot's research results at American congress
Press release: Uppsala, Sweden, October 10, 2023. The Sexual Medicine Society North America has selected the pharmaceutical company Dicot's research results as one of the agenda items at its annual congress in November. The expert in sexual medicine Professor François Giuliano is to present the preclinical program behind the company's potency drug candidate.
The goal of the Sexual Medicine Society North America (SMSNA) is to promote, encourage and support the highest standards of practice, research, education and ethics in the study of human sexual functions and dysfunctions. At the annual congress in San Diego at the end of November, the preclinical research results behind Dicot's potency drug candidate LIB-01 will be presented.
Professor François Giuliano will give the presentation. He is a clinically active urologist in France, a widely published author in scientific journals and has won several international awards in the field of sexual medicine. Professor Giuliano is also one of the founders of the contract laboratory Pelvipharm and was responsible for all preclinical effect studies carried out with LIB-01. Dicot will also be represented by Charlotta Gauffin, the company's Chief Scientific Officer.
"I am delighted to introduce the exciting findings regarding LIB-01, including its extended duration of effect and its differentiated mode of action, which sets it apart from currently available drugs. In my daily interactions with patients experiencing erectile dysfunction, I am acutely aware of the pressing need for new improved treatments. LIB-01 has the potential to make a meaningful impact", comments Professor Giuliano.
"Coming out with our research results internationally is something we focus a lot on now as we have stepped into the clinic phase with LIB-01. Now American top researchers and physicians can learn the positive results from our preclinical program and we were proud and happy that Professor François Giuliano, who is a well-known expert in the field, offered to give the presentation," says Dicot CEO Elin Trampe.
